Ancestry is bringing together science and self-discovery to help everyone discover the story of what led to them. Ancestry, the global leader in family history and consumer genomics, harnesses the information found in family trees, billions of rich historical records, and more than 3 million DNA samples to provide people with deeply meaningful insights about who they are and where they come from.

The company has helped pioneer the market for online family history research, taking a pursuit that was expensive and time-consuming and making it easy, affordable and accessible to anyone with an interest in their family history. Ancestry hosts the world’s largest online collection of family history records. The foundation of their service is an extensive collection of 80 million family trees and 19 billion records that they have digitized, indexed, and put online over the past 20 years. An average of 2 million records is added to the website each day.
